Ammoudaki is a particularly small but very popular cove to nudists.
The beach consists of tiny broken seashells hence the waters’ amazing turquoise color.
West of the beach you can swim to a spectacular sea cave.
There are many tamarisk trees offering shade and the ability to camp near the beach.
Although both beaches can get extremely crowded, they are among the most quiet and worth visiting beaches in the area.

How to get to Ammoudi

Ammoudi beaches are accessible only by private cars and motorbikes.
Access from Rethymnon is possible by public bus up to the village Lefkogeia, about 4km before the beaches.
Access is also possible on foot if you walk east of Damnoni through a dirt road.
